There are some interesting shapes on your Neubaufahrzeug. Are those boxes on the side filled with anything on the real thing? Its good to hear that the Amusing Hobby kit is a good one. I have never seen one before.



Hi Paul,

I am not sure if they are access hatches or crew hatches. It is definitely an interesting build.

Hopefully I will get a chance to post some new pics tonight.

Mr. K - That sure looks like a Landship to me - sponson mounted main gun, and two turrets stacked up on top. Perfect!

Who is the kit? I have one of these I want to build in pre-war markings as used in the Georgia war games.

Hello all,
A late participation.
The classic M-3 Lee tank has 4 guns. I think it's a landship.

Regards,
K.

Back to work on the 2C.

I primed the tank and the crewman in black with Mr Surfacer 1500. Yes, it is patchy in some places because of the size of the beast. I will have to be more carefull when applying the camo.

Comrade - I'm glad to see the progress on the KV-5. You made the beads out of putty? Did the kit welds look too light or did they miss them out completely?



Yep, welds out of two part epoxy putty. There are a few welds here and there, but missing on most places there should be.

I have been working away on my Amusing Hobby Neubaufahrzeug. I must admit it is quite a nice kit so far.Wish i was further along but real life keeps getting in the way.

Here are some pics

Is anybody working on a Landship lately? It has been pretty quiet around here . . .

My own T35 project is on hold for another week or two while I finish the Jagdpanther for the Big Kitty campaign. The T35 is still right there on the bench and it has not been forgotten!



I've been working on my kitty too, but I'm back to working on this one.


Started my welds on the hull.


Engine deck finished

No pictures, but I did also paint the MG turrets. Road wheels primed and awaiting paint.

LOL, I have to schedule builds for all my campaigns,and my Landship is still 5 away, but some of those will be quick ones...so many is a good problem to have!!!



I hear ya! We gotta lotta time with this campaign so of course, it will get put off until the eleventh hour. That's human nature!

The good part for me is that that darned T35 is so fascinating that I want to get to it sooner rather than later . . .

Though, I admit to being a little hesitant to build that M60A1 so soon. What does everyone think on the validity of the Type 5 Chi-Ri as a "landship"? I've had my eye on the FM kit of it for a while, and the size / hull mounted secondary gun look very "landship" to me!

I'm with Stephan, it sure looks like a Landship to me. WW2 Japanese subjects are a special interest of mine and I would doubly welcome seeing a Chi-Ri built here. Please feel free to build away.


Ok, perfect. As I've been planning to buy that kit since I started modelling. Having an excuse to only makes it better!
... I might also get a 1/72 O-I with it, if shipping allows.

Yeah, it'll be a couple more months before I get into my T-28, only have, what, 14 other campaigns this spring/summer



You are a busy man! I completed 11 models last year, a record for me but 14 is better than one per month, a real achievement.

We have plenty of time on this campaign due to the complicated nature of some of the Landship models. The deadline isn't until September so build away as time permits. My own T-35 is on hold while I try to finish the Jagdpanther.

I would think so. It's in the same class as the Char bis and M6 heavy tank.

I'm finishing the weathering on my Crusader. I got stuck on Pzkpfw I link to link track on my build for improvised ingenuity.


That's what I assumed. Thanks
I'm just limited by how long it takes for the order to arrive, as getting FM kits locally seems like a no-go.

Has anyone been working on their Landships?

I have been spending my modeling time on a Dragon Jagdpanther for the Big Cat campaign which is on short deadline. This last week has been spent trying to make the ATAK zimmerit kit to fit the model, what a mess! I look forward to getting back to the more straightforward T-35 . . .


I'm due to start on mine within the month, or at worst, next month. I've got a few simple builds to help me adjust to modelling again, and then I'll HOPEFULLY be ready to start on my M60A1, The PE still looks pretty intimidating, but I'm looking forward to it.
I've been feeling better since around Christmas, numerous things happened since then (Nothing bad, luckily), but it's been nice watching progress on the builds in this campaign! It's been helping me get the motivation to build again, and if nothing else, I feel pretty lucky to still have the option to!
Sorry if this post is a little off-topic, I'm still just in a pretty happy mood that I recovered 100%

I have been away from modeling for a week or so with out of town guests and a new reloading press to play with. I did get a bit more done on the Zvezda T-35 kit. The bogie assemblies are done and are trial fitted to the hull. I'll glue them on after painting. Here are some pics:

Eric - Your Tadpole looks like fun. I had some of the Emhar 1/35 kits in the past but never knew they did 1/72 version.
